The debut novel The Joy Luck Club (1989) catapulted Amy Tan to commercial and critical success, spending over 40 weeks on The New York Times Best Seller list. In this last film completed by James Redford (1962-2020), Tan opens up with remarkable frankness about the traumas she’s faced and how her writing has helped her heal. Home movies and personal photographs are interwoven with animations and interviews to offer an inside look at a brave artist whose humanity infuses all of her work.
